The Artist Survival Kit (ASK) offers professional development for Oklahoma artists. Through Workshops, Office Hours, and Artist Forums, ASK provides artists with the necessary information to succeed in their careers and build a sense of community among diverse artists from across the state.
The ASK Workshop series addresses marketing, technology, and organizational skills artists need to thrive. This ongoing series of events promote professionalism and is structured as a helpful forum for Oklahoma artists.
